Solo Nominations NOW Open!

Only Choir Teachers/Choir Support can nominate. This form is password protected.

Closing on 18 May (week 4)

Don't forget the Pre Audition Solo Workshops are to help prepare your Soloists and are open for bookings.

"Don’t Stop"- if one school has TWO students that combined well for the harmonies in the last line of each verse, they can nominate those TWO soloists as ONE solo. This would also apply for the "Don't Stop" Solo 3 and 4.

The number of soloists a school can nominated is directly linked to your schools allocation:

Quarter Row (8 students) can nominate for ONE solo
Half Row (16 students) can nominate for TWO solos
Full Row (32 students) can nominate for FOUR solos
Above One Row (48+ students) can nominate for SIX solos

Note that each solo part can only be nominated once (e.g. only one student can sing the solo for Rockstar Solo #1). A student can only nominate for a maximum of two solos. You can only submit this form ONCE.
